Spring Newsletter Information

COVID-19 response

To better protect the health and well-being of our students, we have decided to pend the spring group lessons and Sunday Tea Dances indefinitely, effective March 15. However, we will consider private lessons on a case-by-case basis. Please call or text 309.824.4007 to make arrangements.

We will update the website as the timeline becomes clearer. Check back for updates.

Tea Dances

Sunday afternoon Tea Dances will be held as scheduled through the holidays, the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sundays of the month from 2-5 pm. Brush up on some of those steps you may have partially forgotten and practice the ones that you recently acquired. We're happy to help you get over that hurdle and back on the floor. Admission is $7/person and includes an afternoon of dancing and treats.

Private Lessons

If our current class offerings don't meet your needs for any reason, you may consider private lessons. One-on-one, private lessons offer individualized instruction and move at the pace you're comfortable with. We offer private lessons any time the studio isn't booked for classes/dances, including daytimes and weekends. Focus on your favorite dance, fix what's broken, learn a dance that's not on the schedule, or get ready for a special event. Call Wayne at 309.824.4007 to reserve your spot. Lessons are $50/hour.

Let's Dance Big Band Dance Weekend - July

We've received information about the Let's Dance Big Band Dance weekend at Northern Illinois University in Dekalb. The dates this year are July 17-19. Best rates for sign-up are through May 1. Lots of live dance music and dancing all weekend long!

Date Night=Gift Certificates

Do you need a date night--or know someone else who could use one? Dance lessons make great dates, and whether you're gifting a single private lesson ($50/hour) or a regular evening out for 10 weeks ($150/person), we can help. Contact Wayne or call 309.824.4007 to make arrangements for a personalized gift.
